Is this a typo or are you really using JDK 1.1.1?

Can you please confirm the following: 
JAVA_HOME is set?
%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar exists?
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\javac.exe exists?

Please provide some more details:

Value of %JAVA_HOME%, version of Ant, value of %ANT_HOME%, if you are
running Ant 1.5.1 or greater, the output from 'ant -diagnostics' would
be useful as well.
